What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

3 Things You Should Not Tell Your Insurance Provider After a Car Accident

After an auto accident, the drivers’ insurance companies often become involved in determining who will pay for what. If one of the drivers is injured, this process can become considerably more complicated. Thus, when injured drivers talk to their insurance providers, they need to be careful about what they say, or they may weaken their future legal options.

If you have been injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to pursue compensation. Dealing with insurers and other motorists can make this process more difficult to handle. To learn more about what you should disclose to your insurance provider, contact Jacksonville injury lawyer Donald Guthrie today at 904-296-1088.

#1: “I Do Not Have a Lawyer.”

The problem with admitting a lack of legal counsel is that insurers may not take your case very seriously.

#2: “It Was My Fault.”

After an accident, a driver should never admit fault to an accident. Taking the blame for an accident can destroy a person’s case for compensation in the future and can bias the insurance company’s evaluation of the accident.

#3: “Here is My Family’s Contact Information.”

In some cases, an insurer may ask for additional contact information. However, this is not a necessary part of their job. An injured driver should be their primary focus, and any communication between the policyholder and provider should go between the driver and the insurer alone.
